If you were hoping we might get a weekend without some VAR controversy in the Premier League, it was wishful thinking unfortunately.
After Liverpool fell behind to an early Trézéguet goal at Villa Park, Roberto Firmino thought he’d got the league leaders back on level terms.
But down at Stockley Park, VAR Martin Atkinson had other ideas …
Supporters on Twitter were most unimpressed …

Do anyone think that Firmino goal was onside? Don't understand how Twatkinson was trying to operate the VAR but everytime that bastard is officiating our game in any manner whatsoever, he does everything in his power to give decisions against us. Don't want him at our games. #LFC
